Here is a collection of photos of fishes. These pictures are all taken in natural habitats around Maui (Hawaii, USA). Certainly they're not the best photos ever, but as I am fairly new to underwater photography (I just started in earnest in August 2000), I hope to occasionally be able to replace some of these with better representative pictures of each species over time. Have fun...!!
